Stronger than Gorilla Glass

Transparent ceramics are harder than conventional glass and exceptionally resistant to heat and corrosive chemical substances, and are considered a promising alternative to glass-based materials. Like all ceramics, however, they are highly susceptible to fracture. To combat this, Jülich/DE scientists are working on an innovative coating technique that enhances the mechanical and optical properties of transparent ceramics in a targeted manner. They have now succeeded in doubling the fracture toughness of these ceramics. The results of their study have been published in the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports.
